Welcome to the first International Workshop on Knowledge Graphs for 
Sustainability - KG4S @ The Web Conference, in Austin, Texas, April 30 - 
May 4, 2023

Workshop website: https://kg4s.org/

***Call for papers***

Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have in the past decade emerged as a core Web 
technology, powering many real-world applications. Not the least because 
of an increased focus on Explainable AI and Data Science, where KGs can 
play a key role in both providing semantic interoperability and data 
integration (linking), as well as reasoning with the represented 
knowledge. KGs have been applied both in general scenarios, such as Web 
search and retrieval, as well as in many domain specific applications.

With this workshop we want to highlight the intersection between 
Knowledge Graphs, and sustainability research. The workshop specifically 
targets approaches from the Web research community for improving 
sustainability using KG technologies. The objectives of the workshop are 
both to share preliminary research results from academia and industry, 
as well as identifying challenges and opportunities that can lead to new 
collaborations, new directions and future research. Ultimately the aim 
is to increase the contribution of KGs to the transformation towards 
global sustainability. Examples of KG applications for sustainability 
include climate data expressed in KGs, for breaking climate data silos, 
KGs for supporting circular economy, and KGs for sustainable smart cities.


The overall theme of the workshop is Knowledge Graphs, and KG-based Web 
solutions and applications, for sustainability. This includes both 
ecological, economical and social sustainability, and the full spectrum 
of methods for transforming our society towards these goals. Such 
methods and approaches include, for instance, the circular economy, as a 
way to reduce waste and improve ecological and economic sustainability 
of industry and consumption. Another example is using KGs for breaking 
climate data silos and improve climate research. and integration of 
climate data. Further examples include sustainable smart cities, where 
the city as a complex system is studied and redesigned to improve all 
aspects of sustainability, including the social aspect. However, these 
are merely examples of possible applications that support transformation 
towards sustainability, other methods and applications are very welcome 
as long as the connection to sustainability is clearly explained in the 

More specific research topics include, but are not limited to:


    KGs consisting of, or linking, sustainability data


    KG schemas (ontologies) for sustainability data


    Spatial and temporal aspects of KGs pertaining to sustainability


    KG or ontology patterns specifically important for describing,
    linking and using sustainability data


    KG interfaces that support sustainability analysis


    Web infrastructure and approaches, related to KGs, for supporting
    sustainability aspects of the Web itself


    Applications supporting sustainability solutions by using KGs or
    other related Semantic Web technologies


    Sustainable use and development of KGs and KG-based applications
